About the Shape - Inspired by the profile of a traditional European chef knife, Gyutos are a multi purpose knife with a slight meat cutting bias. “Gyuto” translates to “cow sword.” If you want one knife to do it all, This is it. Starting at 180mm, Gyutos can reach the ridiculously long (and awesome) 370mm. For the at-home or professional cook, we recommend a Gyuto which measures between 210mm and 270mm long.

About Manaka Hamono - Shunsuke Manaka is a relatively young blacksmith in Kasukabe, Saitama pref. He is 3rd generation knife maker in the area. His father-in-law became almost a wholesaler instead of blacksmithing. He didn’t like the way his father-in-law operates his business, so he decided to be a blacksmith. He didn’t have anyone who could teach him but fortunately he had a buncu of equipment that he inherited (spring hammer, sharpening wheel etc.). He began making knives about 10 years ago. With many years of struggle and learning, he attained the technique to forge-weld in house even stainless steels. Now he forge-weld everything in house including Carbon/soft steel, Stainless/stainless steel and carbon/stainless steel. He learnt quite a bit of heat treatment including sub-zero heat treatment for stainless steel. He likes ATS-34 stainless steel (Hitachi made Stanless steel pretty popular steel among custom knife makers in Japan). He also forges ZDP-189 as well as VANADIS 4 Extra.
